This week, we’re talking about tough teens, fantastic fans and second-generation millennials.
Don’t miss this Friday’s episode of Geek Hard as Andrew and Mr. Green bring you another jam-packed show of awesome! Actor, writer and producer Amanda Joy will be on the show via phone to talk with the guys about season 2 of Second Jen, which premieres this Saturday, August 4th on OMNI Television. The comedy series follows two best friends trying to assert their independence and find their place in the world, while dealing with overprotective immigrant families who think they know what’s best for them. Here’s a quick bio on Amanda:
Amanda Joy is second-generation Filipino-Chinese-Canadian. She is an actor, screenwriter, and filmmaker based in Toronto. Her crime drama, Hunter’s Chance was recently picked up for production. She is set to appear as Sophie in Sean Astin’s upcoming dramedy eHero and is a regular on-air contributor to CBC Radio q. Joy is an alumna of the WGC’s Diverse Screenwriters’ Program. She is a member of The Beaverton’s online writing staff. She has also worked short-lived stints as a diamond runner and portable hot-chocolate dispenser (true story).

But that’s not all. You’ll also hear our interview with Fan Expo Canada coordinator (and long time friend of Geek Hard) James Armstrong. James is on to tell us what to expect from this year’s convention, happening at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, August 30th to September 2nd. What excitement awaits over Labour Day Weekend? Be sure to catch our interview with James to find out!
Finally, what episode of Geek Hard would be complete without a movie review? We take a trip to the cinema to check out The Darkest Minds. In a world where children are feared, one group of teenager form a resistance group to fight for their future. Is this film worth fighting for? Listen to the show this Friday for Andrew and Green’s honest opinions.
